GOP Sen. Ted Cruz, among others, wrote that this is not OK — but did the actor-turned-activist help the pro-life cause?

Weighing in on the state of Alabama’s recent passage of a law prohibiting abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected (at around six weeks), actor-turned-artist Jim Carrey shared a new creative work depicting — yes — the abortion of GOP Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, who signed the measure into law.

See his artwork in his tweet below.

It carried the message: “I think if you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.”

Many on the Right reacted strongly to the new piece of artwork.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote on Twitter that Carrey’s illustration and message were “not OK” — and that today’s Left is “vicious, angry and consumed by hate.”

Instead, he urged “civility.”

Others, however, while acknowledging the viciousness of the message, are also saying Carrey’s artwork could help the case against abortion.
